Imagine, if you will, Colin Farrell as a vampire. OK, let that sink in; now, imagine him in a comedy. No, it's not the same movie, but it is true that Farrell is going to star in the movie Fright Night as a vampire, and then will appear in Horrible Bosses, a comedy directed by Seth Gordon.
Farrell will terrorize Anton Yelchin and Toni Collette in the Fright Night remake, which I can actually see him in (hot vampires not being a foreign concept here), but I'm actually having a better time picturing him yukking it up onscreen. Which role are you more looking forward to?
